Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0get common denominators on the left side: \(\huge \frac{ 1 }{ sinx+1 }\cdot (\color {red}{\frac{ sinx1 }{ sinx1 }})  \frac{ 1 }{ sinx1 }\cdot( \color {red}{\frac{ sinx+1 }{ sinx+1 }}) = \frac{ 2 }{ 1\sin^2x} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the left side in simplified form will be: \(\huge \frac{(sinx1)(sinx+1)}{sin^2x1} \) can you simplify this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@dpaInc i get this \[\huge \frac{ \sin^2x+sinxsinx1 }{ sinx^21 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did you get that? all you're doing is subtracting....: \(\huge \frac{(sinx1)(sinx+1)}{sin^2x1} \) =\(\huge \frac{1\cdot (sinx1)1\cdot (sinx+1)}{sin^2x1} \) =\(\huge \frac{sinx1sinx1}{sin^2x1} \) =\(\huge \frac{2}{sin^2x1} \) =\(\huge \frac{2}{1sin^2x} \)
